PANO - A fine-art exhibition, “Britain through my drawings”, took place at the British University Vietnam (BUV) in Hanoi on May 27th.
The eight-day exhibition, jointly held by the British Embassy and BUV, aims to celebrate the National Children’s Day (on June 1st).
Created by children at the Co Xinh Fine Arts Centre, around 40 paintings were inspired from the Royal Wedding on April 29th and the UK’s traditional symbols, such as the Tower Bridge of London, Big Ben Clock (though Big Ben is the nickname for the great bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London and this nickname is now generally extended to refer to the clock or the clock tower as well), London Black Taxis, and other famous icons, such as fictional magician Harry Porter, singer Susan Boyle, and footballer, Wayne Rooney.
The British Ambassador, Antony Stokes, said that young artists should be proud of their own talents. “I am delighted when many of them are regarding the UK as an excellent destination for education, creativity and talent development,” he added.
“We are pleased to open the exhibition. This is a clear evidence for good relations between Vietnam and the UK, especially in terms of education. BUV is here to help young Vietnamese have an opportunity to study in a professional environment of British education in Vietnam,” said Khalid Muhmood, special consultant of BUV.
